On April 22, 2005, Tele Atlas N.V. and Tele Atlas North America (Tele Atlas) filed a complaint against NAVTEQ in the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The complaint, as amended on February 19, 2007, alleged that NAVTEQ violated Sections 1 and 2 of the Sherman Act, Section 3 of the Clayton Act, and Sections 16720, 16727 and 17200 of the California Business and Professions Code, and that NAVTEQ intentionally interfered with Tele Atlas contractual relations and prospective economic advantage with third parties, by allegedly excluding Tele Atlas from the market for digital map data for use in navigation system applications in the United States through exclusionary and predatory practices. Tele Atlas was seeking preliminary and permanent injunctive relief, monetary, exemplary and treble damages, and costs and attorneys fees of suit. The parties entered into an agreement settling this matter in December 2008. The settlement resolves the entirety of the dispute pending before the United States District Court for the Northern District of California. The terms of the settlement are confidential.
